I really need to get better at naming stuff. Sausage Leek soup sounds pretty lame compared with the taste.
2 bunches of leeks chopped. Leek are like “softer” tasting onions.
1 lb Spicy Italian Sausage
3 cups of chopped potatoes
8 oz cream, or if you are lucky enough to get your hands on it 1 box of Gossners boxed cream. This stuff is awesome it makes the best whipped cream ever.
42 oz of Chicken stock (3 cans)
Wash the leeks, they get grit in their layers so cut the greens off and cut in half and rinse well. Add salt and a little oil to a pot and sweat out the leeks over medium heat. Once the leeks are transparent add the potatoes and chicken stock. Bring to a boil for 5 minutes and reduce to a simmer until the potatoes are cooked (cooked potatoes are soft, but still offer a little resistance when you bite down on them). Stir in the cream, add some chopped tomatoes and serve.
Please note that I did not have any “weird” cheese in this
Post note: After making this dish I started reading recipes. They all called for blending the soup before service. I tried it with the leftovers, it made the flavors a little better, but the texture was not great. I think that I will blend some and leave some as is. It was a really great soup.

How about “Leeky sausage soup?”
…and it makes me happy to not feel sort of sick when I read about food so: yea!
My life must be at a bit of a low if that’s all it takes to get a smile.
sort of sick, wow! Have you ever really had a dish made from good blue cheese or is all of your bias based on kraft blue cheese dressing? Two things to make you life look brighter 1. School is out soon. 2. You can buy all of your knitting supplies online http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/notions-needles.html. Don’t put your eye out.
I like your picture and the garnishing!
gosh, I don’t know what to say…the fact that you’re looking up knitting supplies with your valuable time is quite touching. Perhaps you’ve taken up a new hobby? And, I will not reveal the source of my moldy-cheese bias but I will say that your comment has made me re-think my opinion. – And that’s saying something! My stubborn ways are a bit legendary. – Maybe one of these days I’ll give it a try.
